Computer products distributor Ingram Micro has begun selling open source software by Linspire, a company formerly known as Lindows.

Linspire has built a group of application software products around its desktop operating system, which is based on Linux.

The agreement with Ingram will enable Linspire to leverage the retailer’s catalog and North American distribution center network, the firm said Wednesday

“Desktop Linux will now be on the shelves in places that it's never been before and in the hands of countless new builders, thanks to Ingram Micro's distribution network,” said Kevin Carmony, CEO of Linspire, in a statement.
